  • Epstein Institute Seminar - ISE 651

    Tue, Sep 01, 2015 @ 03:30 PM - 04:50 PM

    Daniel J. Epstein Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: John E. Mitchell, PhD, Rensselaer Polytechnic University

    Talk Title: A Convex Reformulation of Rank-constrained Optimization Problems

    Series: Epstein Institute Seminar

    Abstract: Low rank approximations are desirable in many settings. We show that the problem of minimizing a linear or convex quadratic objective function of a matrix subject to linear constraints and an upper bound on the rank is equivalent to a convex conic optimization problem. The reformulation first represents the problem as a semidefinite program with conic complementarity constraints and then lifts the problem to give an equivalent convex conic optimization problem. The rank-sparsity decomposition problem falls within our framework.

    Biography: John Mitchell is a Professor of Mathematical Sciences and of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He earned a PhD in operations research from Cornell University. He has multiple publications on interior point column generation, semidefinite programming, mathematical programs with complementarity constraints, integer programming, and applications of optimization. His research is concerned with the interplay between different areas of optimization, for example using continuous optimization techniques to solve discrete optimization problems, or employing integer programming techniques to solve problems with complementarity constraints, or exploiting strong convex relaxations of nonconvex optimization problems. His applied optimization projects include the development of recovery plans for interdependent infrastructure systems after a disaster, scheduling sports leagues, path planning in robotics, and financial optimization.

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Takashi Tanaka, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

    Talk Title: LQG Control with Minimal Information: Semidefinite Programming Approach

    Series: CommNetS

    Abstract: Real-time decision-making procedures in general require continuous acquisition of information from the environment. In this talk, we revisit one of the most fundamental questions in real-time decision-making theory: what is the minimal information acquisition rate to achieve sequential decision-making with desired accuracy? We tackle this question using basic tools from control theory, information theory, and convex optimization theory. Specifically, we consider a Linear-Quadratic-Gaussian (LQG) control problem where Massey's directed information from the state sequence to the control sequence is taken into account. We show that the most "information-frugal" decision-making policy achieving desired LQG control performance admits an attractive three-stage separation structure comprised of (1) an additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel, (2) Kalman filter, and (3) a certainty equivalence controller. We also show that an optimal policy can be synthesized using a numerically efficient algorithm based on semidefinite programming (SDP).

    Biography: Takashi Tanaka received his B.S. degree from Tokyo University in 2006, M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2009 and 2012, all in Aerospace Engineering. Currently, he is a postdoctoral associate at the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research interests are in the joint area of control, optimization, game theory and information theory.

  • Computer Engineering Seminar

    Fri, Sep 04, 2015 @ 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Yiorgos Makris, University of Texas at Dallas

    Talk Title: Applications of Machine Learning in the Design of Trusted and Reliable Analog/RF ICs

    Abstract: As electronics continue to penetrate every facet of contemporary life, the analog/RF integrated circuit (IC) market is experiencing unprecedented growth, with its current annual value standing at over $45B. With application domains mainly in wireless communications, real-time control, remote sensing, automotive and health, ensuring reliability and trustworthiness of analog/RF integrated circuits becomes paramount. This seminar elucidates the role that machine learning and statistical analysis can play towards this end. Specifically, we will discuss (i) a classification-based test method for testing whether the performances of a fabricated analog/RF IC meet its specifications, (ii) a regression-based calibration method for tuning the performances of each fabricated device through the use of on-chip knobs in order to increase yield, (iii) a statistical side-channel fingerprinting method for detecting malicious circuit inclusions (a.k.a. hardware Trojans) in wireless cryptographic ICs, and (iv) the design of on-chip analog neural networks for enabling post-deployment built-in self-test, self-repair and self-trust evaluation. Results will be provided using industrial test data and measurements from custom-designed analog/RF ICs.

    Biography: Yiorgos received the Diploma of Computer Engineering and Informatics from the University of Patras, Greece, in 1995 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Engineering from UC San Diego, in 1998 and 2001, respectively. After spending a decade on the faculty of Yale University, he joined UT Dallas where he is now a Professor of Electrical Engineering, leading the Trusted and RELiable Architectures (TRELA) Research Laboratory. His research focuses on applications of machine learning and statistical analysis in the development of trusted and reliable integrated circuits and systems, with particular emphasis in the analog/RF domain. He is the 2016 general chair and was the 2013-2014 program chair of the IEEE VLSI Test Symposium as well as the 2010-2012 program chair of the Test Technology Educational Program (TTEP). He is an associate editor of the IEEE Design & Test periodical and the Springer Journal of Electronic Testing: Theory and Applications, and served as a guest editor for the IEEE Trans. on Computers and the IEEE Trans. on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems, and as a topic coordinator and/or program committee member for several IEEE and ACM conferences. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE, a recipient of the 2006 Sheffield Distinguished Teaching Award and a recipient of the Best Paper Award from the 2013 Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE'13) conference. His research activities have been supported by NSF, ARO, SRC, DARPA, Boeing, IBM, LSI, Intel, and Texas Instruments.

    Fri, Sep 04, 2015 @ 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Professor Josephy Bardin, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

    Talk Title: BiCMOS Circuits for Ultra Sensitive Scientific Sensor Systems

    Series: Integrated Systems Seminar

    Abstract: In a variety of critical scientific fields, the highest performance instrumentation exploits cryogenically cooled electronics to achieve levels of performance far beyond what is feasible using room temperature electronics. For example, the free-space optical communications link-”currently under development by NASA for Gbps communication with spacecraft-”requires the use of superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPD) operating at 1 K physical temperature to achieve sufficient earth terminal sensitivity. While much research has been focused on novel device technologies to enable new and more sensitive scientific instrumentation, limited work has focused on the use of semiconductor circuits to optimize the performance of these systems. In this talk, we will describe our research efforts in ultra-sensitive cryogenically cooled SiGe BiCMOS electronics for scalable scientific instruments. The talk will begin with a review of the physics and performance of SiGe HBTs at deep cryogenic temperatures (e.g., 4 K) and a discussion of challenges encountered by designers targeting this unconventional temperature range. We will then present the design, characterization, and system impact of novel circuits for a variety of applications ranging from THz focal plane arrays for radio astronomy to detector systems for quantum optics.

    Biography: Joseph Bardin received the BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from UCSB, UCLA, and Caltech in 2003, 2005, and 2009, respectively. From 2003-2005, he was with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In the Spring of 2011, he joined the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts Amherst as an Assistant Professor. His research group explores a broad range of topics in the field of high-frequency circuit design ranging from device modeling to the implementation of sophisticated integrated circuits. He is the recipient of a 2011 DARPA Young Faculty Award, a 2014 NSF CAREER Award, and a 2015 ONR YIP Award.

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Jack Xin, PhD, University of California, Irvine

    Talk Title: Minimizing the Difference of L1 and L2 Norms and Applications

    Series: Epstein Institute Seminar

    Abstract: L1 norm minimization is the widely used convex method for enforcing sparsity in signal recovery and model selection. In this talk, we introduce a non-convex Lipschitz continuous function, the difference of L1 and L2 norms (DL12), and discuss its sparsity promoting properties. Using examples in compressed sensing and imaging, we show that there can be plenty of gain beyond L1 by minimizing DL12 at a moderate level of additional computation via the difference of convex function algorithms. We draw connection of DL12 with penalty functions in statistics and machine learning, and remark on future research.

    Biography: Jack Xin has been Professor of Mathematics at UC Irvine since 2005. He received his Ph.D in applied mathematics at Courant Institute, New York University in 1990. He was a postdoctoral fellow at Berkeley and Princeton in 1991 and 1992. He was assistant and associate professor of mathematics at the University of Arizona from 1991 to 1999. He was professor of mathematics from 1999 to 2005 at the University of Texas at Austin.
    His research interests include applied analysis, computational methods and their applications in multi-scale problems, sparse optimization, and data science. He authored over hundred journal papers and two Springer books. He is a fellow of the Guggenheim Foundation, and the American Mathematical Society. He is Editor-in-Chief of Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Interdisciplinary Journal Multi-scale Modeling & Simulation (MMS).

    Speaker: Yuri Bazilevs, Professor of Structural Engineering at the University of California at San Diego

    Talk Title: Computational Fluid-Structure Interaction: Methods Developed and Advanced Simulations Performed

    Series: Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Seminar Series

    Abstract: The presentation is focused on the computational framework that involves coupling of fluid and structural mechanics, where structures undergo large deformations. The formulation of fluid mechanics on the moving domain is presented, and efficient solution strategies for the underlying linear equation systems are discussed. A framework for computational fluid-structure interaction (FSI) based on the Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian formulation is presented. Basics of Isogeometric Analysis are also shown. The fluid-structure interface discretization is assumed to be nonmatching allowing for the coupling of standard finite-element and isogeometric discretizations for the fluid and structural mechanics parts of the FSI problem, respectively. FSI coupling strategies and their implementation in the high-performance parallel computing environment are also discussed, and computational challenges presented. Applications ranging from cardiovascular mechanics to full-scale offshore wind turbines are presented.

    Biography: Prof. Bazilevs received his PhD from the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin in 2006, and he is currently a Full Professor and Vice Chair in Department of Structural Engineering at University of California, San Diego. He has published nearly 100 archival journal papers on computational fluid and solid/structural mechanics, and fluid-“structure interaction. He coauthored a book on isogeometric analysis, a methodology that is now widely used in computational mechanics. He also coauthored a book on computational fluid-structure interaction. He is an Associate Editor of Elsevier journal Computers and Fluids and Assistant Editor of Springer journal Computational Mechanics for the manuscripts on computational fluid mechanics and fluid-“structure interaction.

    Speaker: Al Bowers, Senior Aerodynamicist, NASA Dryden

    Talk Title: Spanload Implications for the Flight of Birds: On the Minimum Induced Drag of Wings

    Series: Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Seminar Series

    Abstract: Birds do not require the use of vertical tails. They do not appear to have any mechanism by which to control yaw. The solution requires aerodynamic efficiency, minimum structural weight, and for coordination of roll and yaw. Until now the solution has eluded researchers, and remained unknown. The solution has far reaching effects on the design of aircraft and promises efficiency improvement. This solution requires discarding the elliptical spanload. The new solution uses a three-dimensional downwash and is manipulated by birds to control roll and yaw with superior aerodynamic performance and minimum structure.

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dan M. Goebel, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology

    Talk Title: The Asteroid Retrieval Robotic Mission using High Power Electric Propulsion

    Abstract: Recent splashes in the media about asteroid mining by two new companies backed by celebrities is based on a real idea by John Brophy of JPL: retrieve all or part of an asteroid and bring it close enough to Earth using advanced, high power electric propulsion to easily send astronauts out to mine it. The same mission may also investigate deflecting an asteroid in anticipation that an ARMAGEDDON-like killer asteroid is found headed toward Earth. A recent study at the Keck Institute at Caltech backed by further work by NASA has investigated robotically capturing and returning a near-earth asteroid (NEA) to various Earth and lunar orbits for study by astronauts and potentially mining by commercial ventures. Moving an asteroid up to several meters in diameter weighing nearly 500,000 kg is a daunting task, but not impossible. Studies show that recent breakthroughs in high power electric thrusters at JPL and the possibility of large area, high voltage solar arrays directly driving these thrusters makes the concept of rearranging the solar system feasible. The ideas behind asteroid retrieval and mining, novel direct drive electric thrusters, and capturing and studying NEA by astronauts in the vicinity of the moon will be explored and described.

    Biography: Dan M. Goebel received a B.S. in physics, an M.S. in electrical engineering, and a Ph.D. in applied plasma physics from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1977, 1978 and 1981 respectively. He is a Senior Research Scientist at Jet Propulsion Laboratory, an Adj. Prof. of Electrical Engineering at USC and an Adj. Prof. of Aerospace Engineering at UCLA. At JPL he is responsible for the development of high efficiency ion and Hall thrusters and advanced components such as cathodes and grids. Previously he was a Research Scientist at HRL Laboratories in Malibu, CA and Principal Scientist at Hughes/Boeing EDD in Torrance, CA where he was the supervisor of the Advanced Technology Group for microwave tube development and the lead scientist of the XIPS ion thruster program for commercial satellite station keeping. Dr. Goebel is a membe3r of the National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the AIAA, Fellow of the IEEE, Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS). He is the author of over 125 technical journal papers, 150 conference papers, one book entitled Fundamentals of Electric Propulsion: Ion and Hall Thrusters published in 2008, and holds 43 patents.

  • CS Seminar Series: Nour Ali (University of Brighton, UK) - Self-Adaptation to Resources in Service Oriented Architecture

    Mon, Sep 28, 2015 @ 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Nour Ali, University of Brighton, UK

    Talk Title: Self-Adaptation to Resources in Service Oriented Architecture

    Series: CS Seminar Series

    Abstract: Pervasive and distributed systems continuously change their environments and resources (e.g. battery or bandwidth). Mobile applications require different services when they enter or exit environments and as their resources change. In this seminar, we present a service oriented architectural approach that supports self-adaptation to changes in resources and location topology when mobility occurs, by reconfiguring the software architecture at runtime. The location topology and mobility primitives are inspired from ambient calculus. Our approach considers ambients to be autonomic elements that can manage elements located in them to their environment and provide them with new services suited to the available resources when mobility occurs. The seminar will also present the background research that has been undertaken in the areas of mobile ambient software architecture as well as architecture recovery and consistency.

    Biography: Nour Ali is a Principal Lecturer at the University of Brighton, UK. She holds a PhD in Software Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Valencia-Spain for her work in Ambients in Aspect-Oriented Software Architecture. She is Fellow of UK Higher Education Academy (HEA). Her research area encompasses service oriented architecture, software architecture, model driven engineering, adaptive software and distributed and mobile systems. In 2014, the University of Brighton granted her a Rising Stars award in Service Oriented Architecture Recovery and Consistency. She is currently leading the Knowledge Transfer Partnership project for migrating legacy software systems using architecture centric approach. She has also been the Principal Investigator for an Enterprise Ireland Commercialisation Project in Architecture Recovery and Consistency and co-investigator in several funded projects. Dr. Ali is the Applications Track Chair for 2015 IEEE International Conference on Mobile Services (MS 2015) and serves on the Programme Committee for several conferences (e.g., ICWS, ICMS, HPCC etc) and journals (e.g., JSS, or JIST). She has co-chaired and co-organized several workshops such as the IEEE International Workshop on Engineering Mobile Service Oriented Systems (EMSOS) and the IEEE Workshop on Future of Software Engineering for/in the Cloud. She was the co-editor of the JSS Special Issue on the Future of Software Engineering for/in the Cloud published in 2013 and Agile and lean service-oriented development: foundations, theory, and practice published in 2012.

Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m. Please make sure to check availability and register online for the session you wish to attend. Also, remember to list an Engineering major as your "intended major" on the webform!
